Congratulations are in order for Stanley Tucci and Felicity Blunt and we did not even know it. The couple that recently became parents for a second time with the birth of their daughter Emilia Giovanna, according to sources at People Magazine. As per a representative of the couple, Emilia was born on Tuesday, April 19, weighing in at 6 lbs, 6 oz.
“Hopefully she will have the looks and brains of her mother and one of my better personalities,” Tucci joked to the publication about his baby girl. The couple's newborn will be joining the family of six, which includes Tucci and Blunt, along with big brother Matteo Oliver, and three of Tucci's children with his late wife Kate, daughter Camilla and twins Nicolo and Isabel.
Blunt and Tucci announced their pregnancy to the world back in March this year, after the couple stepped out together at NYC’s Guggenheim Museum, where a pregnant Blunt embraced her baby bump in a multicolored V-neck dress.
“I’m trying [to spoil her],” 'The Hunger Games' actor told Us Weekly at the time about his literary agent fiancee. “Yes, of course, being very attentive.”
Blunt and Tucci got engaged in 2011, which was five long years after Tucci starred in 'The Devil Wears Prada' alongside his fiancee's sister, Emily Blunt. Back in March, during an interview, Emily spoke about the possibility of a sequel to the popular movie that gave the world Miranda Priestly.
"I mean, if everyone wanted to do it, it would be cool ... I’d be down,” she said. Speaking fondly about Tucci in her interview, she said, "I think he saw [The Devil Wears Prada] again recently," Emily said. "He’s like, 'It’s really funny.'"
Several months before the pair’s first child was born, Tucci gushed to Us Weekly that he was “excited to have a baby with Felicity and for the baby to be healthy.” After his first son Matteo Oliver with Blunt was born, in a statement to the publication, he said, “I believe he is mine. We are all thrilled to welcome him to this cold, cruel world,” adding, “We are all thrilled that he is here and healthy.”
Tucci's ex-wife, Kate, who he was married to for 14 years, died in 2009 from breast cancer. After her death, in an interview with The Guardian, Tucci apologized to Kate and wished that he could have done more to save her.
He said at the time, "We tried everything we could do to save her. I wish that I could have done more and that I could have been with her at the moment she passed away. I couldn’t be in that room, because I knew it would be so devastating that I wouldn’t be able to take care of the kids after."
A year after his wife's death, Tucci met Blunt at his co-star Emily's wedding to John Krasinski, where the couple almost hit it off immediately and a year later, announced their engagement.
